Elemental: Elizabeth Bruno and Tom Small
August 27 – September 21,2021


Seattle based artist Elizabeth Bruno and San Juan Island Artist Tom Small come together with flowers and stone.
Elizabeth Bruno paints stories that gathered over time. Her flat, sometimes collaged, surfaces are dichotomies of days past and present with an intent to slow us down.
Tom Small’s sculptures are inspired by specific locales on the northwest including the islands, beaches, rivers, and mountains. Carved in stone and wood and cast in glass.

"With a performance history spanning more than 27 years and having released 15 CDs, Pearl Django endures as one of the most highly regarded Hot Club style groups working today. Although the band’s roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, its extensive repertoire includes traditional jazz classics and original compositions. Pearl Django has performed at festivals, dances and nightspots throughout the U.S. and abroad. They have played at the prestigious Festival Django Reinhardt in Samois sur Seine and have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” The band’s signature style is marked by pristine and dexterous string work, colors of Bal Musette, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that delights audiences of all musical sensibilities. Throughout the years, Pearl Django has cultivated a devoted and enthusiastic following and they continue to play to packed houses wherever they perform."

Hansard
Written by Simon Woods

Directed by Simon Godwin 
Starring Olivier Award winners Lindsay Duncan and Alex Jennings

"It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital sparring quickly turns to blood-sport."

Composer
Modest Mussorgsky


"Bass René Pape, the world’s reigning Boris, reprises his overwhelming portrayal of the tortured tsar caught between grasping ambition and crippling paranoia. Conductor Sebastian Weigle leads Mussorgsky’s masterwork, a pillar of the Russian repertoire, in its original 1869 version, which runs two-and-a-quarter hours with no intermission. Stephen Wadsworth’s affecting production poignantly captures the hope and suffering of the Russian people as well as the tsar himself."
